best suspension set up?

So it is time to change my suspension, I have 62,000 miles on my car and the shocks are DONE. I've been researching the best set up an came out to three choices:
1 - H&R Sport Cup Kit for the BMW E90

2 - KONI FSD shocks with Eibach Pro-kit springs combo

3 - E90/E92 (non-m) Bilstein HD Shocks for 325i with my stock zsp springs
http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html...CT_ID=E90HDSET
Unfortunately coilovers are to pricey for me. If anyone is running any set up from my list I would greatly appreciate your input, mainly ride quality, drop any rubbing. Thanx

I went with option 2 and love it.

Our top kits are the H&R Cup Kit and Koni FSD/Eibach Pro Kit Combo. They are both excellent choices, the H&R offers better performance and a lower stance while the FSD is more comfortable with a less aggressive drop. I typically go by what the customer is looking for to guide them with their purchase. Suspension is subjective and depends on a variety of factors including performance, comfort, car's use and road conditions.

thanks for the quick response, I'm mainly looking just for suspension replacement and aftermarket parts are better quality than oem. I use my car as a daily driver.
